I have an H&S XRT pro with the dpf delete and love it milkeage increase was great and the truck drives like it never did before. Also their customer service is fantastic and you don't have to pay for their tunes when they come out with new ones. Can't speak to the others but would recommend H&S to anyone

Any of the DPF delete tuners (Spartan, H&S, SCT with custom tuning) is going to be about the same as far as mileage goes.

I run H&S and have had zero issues with it. Seems to be the best bang for the buck out there.

With the latest update, Spartan shifting is spot on. Also, the DashDAQ is touch screen with an awesome resolution. It is customizable, has a very large selection of PID's for monitoring, can monitor up to 16 things at one time if needed, and has numerous themes to choose from.

Feel free to PM or email with any questions you may have!

I also recommend going with an H&S XRT Pro, Mini Maxx, or Black Maxx for the tuner. Flo-Pro and Diamond Eye both make very nice exhaust kits and AFE or S&B would be my recommendation for the intake. We have all of the listed products on our site with more info and pricing. For the best bang for your buck, go with a package deal. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.



ICON Vehicle Dynamics | S&B Intakes | MBRP Exhaust | American Force Wheels | Diamond Eye | AFE Intakes | Carli Suspension | Industrial Injection | Garrett Turbos | FASS | Method Wheels | Bilstein Shocks | Airdog | KMC Wheels | Spartan | RSouth Bend Clutch | SCT | Edge Products | ATS Diesel | Bullydog | BMF Wheels | AMP Research | & much more....
